Recipe for Cannabis Coconut Oil
- One cup of ground cannabis flower. ( Use less if you want to make it less potent)
- One cup of coconut oil
- Strainer Or a Cheesecloth (either one works)
- Grinder (We recommend going old school and using a simple handheld grinder, no need to get fancy with it)
The list in itself is quite straightforward, and it requires minimal equipment. If you do not have a saucepan accessible to you, a double-boiler or a slow cooker also works perfectly.
Let’s Get Infusing
Grind the cannabis. We supply premium flower, which is the flower that we use for making our cannabis-infused coconut oil. It is all a matter of preference whether you will be including the entire plant, just the flower, or a little bit of both. Do not, and we repeat, do not grind your cannabis to a fine powder. Anything small enough to fit through the strainer will end up in your finished product.
Combine the coconut oil and cannabis into the slow cooker. Make sure that the heat is on a low or warm temperature for a few hours. Doing this is an essential step because we want to activate the THC, also known as decarboxylation.
Pro tip: There are multiple ways of doing this. If you are using a slow cooker, step the temperature to low and cook for 4-6 hours, stirring occasionally. If you are using a double-boiler, keep the heat on low for at least 6 hours, the optimal time to keep it in is for 8 hours. Once again, stir occasionally.
Finally, if you are using a saucepan use on low for at least three hours, now the issue with this is that saucepans are susceptible to scorching. To avoid the scorching add a small amount of water!
Temperature oil should not exceed 245°F!
Note that if you decide to use the cheesecloth, do not squeeze it as this will add more chlorophyll to the oil. The final step is to strain and store the oil.
For the remaining plant material, you can either discard it or use it for something entirely different. The now cannabis-infused coconut oil has a shelf life of up to two months, but if refrigerated, it will extend the life span.
Once the final step is complete, there are endless possibilities as to what you could do with the oil!
